Bicycle Revolution is a documentary film exploring what it takes to bring about social change in urban settings, with a special focus on sustainable transportation. The film follows the experience of students in the Bicycle Revolution course that Professor Steinberg teaches at the Claremont Colleges.
Co-directed by Kevin Foxe (whose credits include the original Blair Witch Project), and featuring new music from the Los Angeles indie rock scene, Bicycle Revolution documents the experience of 15 students in a one-of-a-kind course that takes place entirely on bicycles. Together the students explore a question on every young person’s mind these days: Is meaningful social change possible? In their search for answers, they meet with mayors, city council members, community activists and city staff who are on the front lines of struggles to make sustainability a reality.
Bicycle revolution premiered at the New Urbanism Film Festival and has been screened by dozens of community organizations throughout the United States.
